    Yes the solitary comment is good. I tried to add another but it didn't make it through moderation. We need to keep this in the front of our minds... the way in which MUPS is being rolled out and the derogatory comments used to enthuse members of the medical profession and service providers alike is very worrying.

    I won't add more to this thread as I appreciate it's already covered at my post elsewhere, but this isn't going away.

    They have given the game away:

    "As a GP what can I do?

    ..........I led the development of a number of fact sheets which aim to support GPs in their daily encounters with people with mental health problems. One of these fact sheets focuses on MUS, which makes valuable suggestions to support you, as a GP, in the identification and management of patients suffering with MUS."

    Clearly you only need read the fact sheet if you have a patient with a mental health problem.

    The fact sheet in the "Mental Health Toolkit" for "Medically unexplained Symptoms guidance" is introduced by the statement "The following tools may be used for recognising, diagnosing and helping patients with a mental illness".

    I find it hard to decide whether there is a general lack of competence, or whether it is merely an absence of the skills necessary for drafting complex documents.

    Yeah, relying on your prejudice really is the best management of all. :bang-head:
    That could have perfectly happened with ER doctors
